Singapore starts construction of two Type 218SG submarines

first_img Authorities View post tag: TKMS View post tag: RSN January 16, 2018 The Republic of Singapore has started construction of additional two Type 218SG, air-independent propulsion (AIP) submarines, the country’s defense ministry announced.According to the defense ministry, the steel cutting ceremony for the third and fourth boats in the class took place on January 12.The ceremony was attended by the chief executive of Singapore’s Defence Science & Technology Agency (DSTA), Tan Peng Yam, and ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, CEO Rolf Wirtz.The contract for the additional two submarines was signed between Singapore and Germany’s ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) in May 2017.The first two submarines in the class, ordered in 2013, are at different stages of construction and are set to be delivered to Singapore in 2021 and 2022, respectively. The third and fourth Type 218SG boats are scheduled to be handed over from 2024.The AIP submarines, together with newer Archer-class submarines, will replace the 50-year-old Challenger-class submarines Singapore acquired from Sweden between 1995 and 1997.Specifics on the Type 218 SG boats are scarce and TKMS specifications only indicate that the 2,000-ton submarines are about 70 meters long, have a complement of 28 and feature an X-rudder – similar to Type 212 submarines built for Italy and Germany.MINDEF photo of a Type 218SG cutaway Singapore starts construction of second batch of Type 218SG submarines View post tag: Type 218SG Back to overview,Home naval-today Singapore starts construction of second batch of Type 218SG submarines Share this articlelast_img read more

Southampton end poor run with comfortable defeat of Watford

first_img Press Association On an evening when Watford were as poor as the hosts were intense, goals in each half from Shane Long and Dusan Tadic took Southampton into 12th place and within two points of their underwhelming visitors. Ronald Koeman began with a 3-5-2 formation – and with Ryan Bertrand one of his central defenders – and w ith England international goalkeeper Fraser Forster returning from a long-term knee injury. Controlling possession after Davis’ header, Tadic ran into Watford’s penalty area, created space, and classily finished low beyond Gomes from in front of goal in the 73rd minute. In doing so, a crucial victory was secured, and unlike in the 4-0 defeat of Arsenal, this time winning appeared far from a one-off. TWEET OF THE MATCH “Watford losing puts me in such a bad mood.” – Reading striker Helen Ward was unable to hide her disappointment after Watford’s defeat. PLAYER RATINGS Southampton Fraser Forster: 5 Cedric: 7 Jose Fonte: 6 Virgil van Dijk: 7 Matt Targett: 7 Oriol Romeu: 7 Jordy Clasie: 7 Sadio Mane: 7 Steven Davis: 8 Ryan Bertrand: 7 Shane Long: 8 Subs Maya Yoshida: 5 Graziano Pelle: 5 Dusan Tadic: 8 Watford Heurelho Gomes: 6 Allan Nyom: 5 Miguel Britos: 5 Sebastian Prodl: 5 Jose Holebas: 5 Almen Abdi: 5 Etienne Capoue: 6 Ben Watson: 6 Jose Jurado: 4 Troy Deeney: 4 Odion Ighalo: 5 Subs Victor Ibarbo: 5 Craig Cathcart: 5 Ikechi Anya: 5 STAR PLAYER: Shane Long. Southampton are a far better team when Long starts instead of Graziano Pelle. As is usually the case when he plays, his intelligent runs and ability make Southampton far more fluid in the final third and also make Sadio Mane more of a goal threat. His impressive work-rate was also complimented by another fine finish for his team’s opening goal. MOMENT OF THE MATCH: Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores introduced Victor Ibarbo as a 68th-minute substitute, so shortly after insisting he had no place in his plans. It said much about how poor Watford were that he would then turn to him for some unexpected inspiration, and perhaps also about how he felt about his other substitutes. VIEW FROM THE BENCH: Unusually, given the extent to which they have impressed during Sanchez Flores’ time at Watford, his team appeared unmotivated and unprepared, but the manager has earned more than enough credit for he and the club to consider the poor nature of their performance a one-off. Southampton, perhaps for the first time this season, maintained the intensity they so often show in the opening periods of matches. Particularly given the return to fitness of Fraser Forster, the pressure that had been growing on Ronald Koeman suddenly seems in the past. MOAN OF THE MATCH: Sadio Mane’s finishing. The forward may well have been linked with a transfer to Manchester United, but he was incredibly wasteful in the final third. Had his finishing been more accurate, Southampton could have secured victory by half-time and their biggest victory of the season throughout the second half. Instead, for much of the second period, the threat always remained that Watford could swiftly equalise, and in other games he will not receive so many glorious chances. WHO’S UP NEXT Southampton v West Brom (Premier League, 16 January) Swansea v Watford (Premier League, 18 January) Southampton impressively outplayed and outworked Watford to secure a 2-0 Barclays Premier League victory that should signal the end of their poor run. Throughout much of their disappointing recent run – they had lost eight of their previous 10 fixtures – Southampton had begun games encouragingly before their confidence deteriorated upon harshly conceding the opening goal or not converting their chances. It therefore came as little surprise that they were the more energetic of the two teams immediately after kick-off, even if the reality is their opening goal arrived when the threat appeared minimal. Matt Targett, playing as a wing-back, received possession on the left wing before curling an accurate, 17th-minute cross into the penalty area towards Long – from where the forward neatly headed beyond goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes and inside the right post. Watford’s response was to become even more sluggish, and erratic, and to allow Sadio Mane to run near-unchallenged from the left wing and to the edge of the penalty area before shooting and watching Gomes palm his effort wide. From the resultant corner, Targett – demonstrating his team’s growing confidence – shot from distance before watching the ball being deflected off-target, and while Odion Ighalo provided an isolated response with a run and shot that was also deflected, the hosts otherwise remained in control. The concern remained that with Watford’s talent a one-goal lead would not be enough, and had they secured an equaliser, Mane – more than any other – would have felt responsible. After intercepting a rare misplaced pass from Jose Jurado, the forward found himself immediately in front of goal but instead struck the outside of the post. This was the worst performance the otherwise-impressive Quique Sanchez Flores has overseen since his appointment as Watford’s manager, and he will know that had Mane not missed further chances, and Steven Davis’ classy finish not been ruled offside, his team would have lost more heavily. Pressure had been building on his counterpart, Koeman, but as if to highlight Southampton’s poor run had reached its conclusion and that he remained firmly in control, the manager substituted Mane for Dusan Tadic and was almost instantly rewarded with a goal. last_img read more

Premier League round-up: Newcastle score late to hold Man United in thriller and Aston Villa finally win

first_img 3 Paul Dummett scored an 89th-minute thunderbolt 3 United doubled their lead eight minutes before the break when Rooney was sent clear, before playing in Lingard with a delicious reverse pass and the 23-year-old made no mistake, slotting through the legs of Rob Elliot.However, the two-goal advantage only lasted four minutes as Mitrovic beat Fellaini in the air to head the ball into the path of Wijnaldum, who finished neatly first time.Lingard should have settled the game in the second half when the ball reached him at the back post but he inexplicably curled the ball well over from six yards.And he was made to pay for that miss when referee Dean, again controversially, pointed to the spot after Chris Smalling and Mitrovic wrestled each other to the ground in the United box.Mitrovic picked himself up and scored the resulting penalty to level the scores.The game was not over there as Rooney rolled back the years with a hammer of a goal into the top corner with only ten minutes remaining which managed to get even Louis van Gaal out of his seat.And yet there was still time for Newcastle to spoil Rooney’s party when the ball fell to Dummett on the edge of the area and he fired an unstoppable shot passed the helpless David De Gea.Aston Villa 1-0 Crystal PalaceAston Villa claimed their first win since the opening day of the season and their first under Remi Garde as Joleon Lescott scored to down Crystal Palace at Villa Park.It was almost a nightmare start for the Premier League’s bottom side when, after only 20 seconds, Wilfried Zaha linked well with Jason Puncheon before stroking the ball against the base of Brad Guzan’s post.Aston Villa took the lead just over ten minutes into the second half when Lescott’s header was fumbled by Wayne Hennessey – the ball going first through his arms and then his legs – before crossing the line, with the aid of goal-line technology.It is a priceless three points for Villa in a season which still looks doomed to end in relegation. 3 Newcastle 3-3 Manchester UnitedPaul Dummett scored a last minute thunderbolt to settle a thrilling game with Manchester United at St James’ Park.Wayne Rooney scored twice, including an 80th-minute stunner which looked like it had handed United all three points.Jesse Lingard got the other for the Red Devils, while Georginio Wijnaldum and Aleksandar Mitrovic responded for Newcastle.United took the lead in controversial fashion when referee Mike Dean awarded the visitors a penalty after Marouane Fellaini’s knockdown header ricocheted against the arm of Chancel Mbemba.Rooney made no mistake from the spot to give the Red Devils the lead after only eight minutes. Bournemouth 1-3 West HamDimitri Payet and Enner Valencia put on a late show to inspire West Ham to a comeback victory over Bournemouth at Dean Court.Harry Arter opened the scoring with his first Premier League goal after 17 minutes with a long range effort which Hammers goalkeeper Adrian should have done better to save as the ball skimmed off his outstretched arm and into the net.The visitors managed to draw level with over 20 minutes remaining when Payet, back after injury, showed how much he was missed as he scored a superb free kick, which hit the underside of the bar on its way in.And Payet emphasised his value minutes later when he wriggled through two challenges before squaring to Valencia to smack the ball into the net.Valencia scored his second with a free kick, similar to the one Payet scored earlier in the night, to take West Ham ahead of Manchester United and to within a point of fourth place.last_img read more
